Friends of the Library Book Swap Bazaar

This is your opportunity to be a book peddler, trading books you have read to get books you want to read. On Saturday, April 27 from 1-3 pm, Marvin Auditorium will be transformed into a “book bazaar” for people to rummage for books brought by fellow book lovers. The Book Swap Bazaar also includes entertainment, refreshments and library information and demonstrations.

“In 2012, we replaced our spring member dinner with the Book Swap,” says Linda Hayse, Friends Book Swap chair. “Being able to bring in good quality books to trade for books you want to read is a worthy endeavor. It also helps build supplies for our other retail sale activities.”

The Friends are dedicated to supporting the library, providing quality used books, CDs, DVDs, etc., through the Chandler Booktique, book sales and online sales. In 2012, the Friends provided $135,000 in support of the library.
